Topic: 5 months yesterday since my Tom left
HELLO FROM HEAVEN
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say,
First of all to let you know that I arrived okay.
I AM WRITING THIS FROM HEAVEN where I dwell with God above.
Where there are no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love.
Please don't be unhappy, just because I'm out of sight,
REMEMBER THAT I AM WITH YOU EVERY MORNING, NOON AND NIGHT.
That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and he said, "I WELCOME YOU. It's good to have
you back again, you were missed while you were gone. For your dearest family, they will be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan,
There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man.
Then God gave me a list of things
he wished for me to do.
And most of my list is to watch and care for you.
AND I WILL BE BESIDE YOU every day, week and year,
and when you are sad,
I am standing there to wipe away the tears.
And when you lie in bed at night,
the day's choes put to flight,
GOD AND I ARE CLOSEST TO YOU
in the middle of the night.....
When I think of my life on earth and all those loving years,
Because you're only human,
they are bound to bring you some tears.
PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO CRY,
it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned.
But one thing for certain, though my life is over,
I AM CLOSER TO YOU NOW THAN I EVER WAS BEFORE!
And to my friends, trust God know what's best.
i'M STILL NOT FAR AWAY FROM YOU,
I am just beyond the crest.
There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb,
BUT TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT
taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you, too.
That as you give unto the world, so the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain,
Then you can say to God at night, "My day was not in vain. And now I am content that my life was worthwhile. Knowing I passed along the way, I MADE SOMEBODY SMILE".
So if you meet somebody
who is down and feeling low,
JUST LEND A HAD TO PICK HIM UP
as on your way you go.
When you are walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind,
I AM WALKING IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS
only half a step behind.
And when you feel that gentle breeze or wind upon your face,
THAT'S ME GIVING YOU A GREAT BIG HUG OR JUST A SOFT EMBRACE.
Ane when it's time for you to go from that body to be free,
Remember that you are not going,
you are coming here to me,
AND I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
FROM THAT LAND UP ABOVE.
We'll be in touich again soon.
P.S. God sends his love.
I love and miss you Thomas. These past 5 months have just not been the same. My life seems empty without you, but yet it's so full because of the love we shared. IN SO HUN!
